I admire runners. People who can run for miles and miles... they are amazing to me! But I have to tell you, they are strange and foreign creatures - who I can't relate to in the least. Let's be honest. I'm a wimp. I hate to run, it's torture and I feel like I'm going to die when I do it. I much prefer a long leisurely walk or stroll...

That being said, I'm in awe of people who run the Race to Robie Creek! They are my heroes... because a half marathon UPHILL is something I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. :)

Yesterday, was the registration for Robie - and all 2000 spots were gone in 43 minutes! They even have a lottery for people who missed out on a spot.


What kind of a lottery is that? A lottery where your prize is a 13 mile run UPHILL? It just defies logic.

If you are a die hard runner, and you MUST Race to Robie Creek - we have more information on this lottery in our HOTLINKS. Good luck! You are amazing... I just can't say it enough. (The only part of that race I could take part in is being a water girl)

Today, more than 600 TV stations will turn off their analog signals, but KTVB is not one of them! Congress voted earlier this month to allow stations to delay the digital transition from February 17th (TODAY) until June 12th, 2009 - to give people (like you and me) more time to get ready for the big switch to DIGITAL TV.


We'll wait until JUNE 12TH to turn off our analog signal. So if you're not ready, or if you don't have a converter box for all of your TV sets - you still have time to do what you need to do!
